Marmalade Pantry

C says:

I can’t believe we’ve never written about the tai-tai institution, Marmalade Pantry. We’ve been to the original Palais Renaissance one a couple of times, I’ve tried the one at Hitachi Tower (bad service on a weekday lunchtime!), and today we went to the newest outlet at Holland Village for brunch.

We were there at about 11-ish, so it was a little too early for proper food. A predictably had the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, and I decided on a field mushroom and emmental cheese omelette.

The food wasn’t bad, but nothing to really blow you away. My omelette was suitably runny in the centre, but I would’ve like a stronger hit of emmental cheese. Portions were also quite small, although I do recall that the lunch main course items are more substantial. I guess they take the view that brunch is just the beginning of a lazy day of eating, but don’t order the brunch items if you’re ravenous because you won’t really be satisfied.

Food’s okay but really not worth the price. The atmosphere is really nice so I’d recommend this place for catching up with friends over a snack rather than for a proper meal. And the music they play is awesome.
